A murder mystery set in England. This national bestseller is a "murder she wrote" kind of book involving a museum, a dysfunctional family and a set of wacky museum workers. Two bodies show up early on mimicking historical murders portrayed in the museum's "murder room." A third attempt is made. You will not guess whodunnit.

This is NOT one of the Christian mysteries I usually read. It was well written and free from distracting abusive language. The plot was engaging, although some of the aspects were abhorrent. I was not able to solve the mystery for certain before it was revealed.

I feel somewhat sorry for Maggie M. and her experience (see her review), but only because I had the same experience. After reading about 60-70 pages of this book, I began to wonder if P.D. Jones was really the writer.

Then, after P.J. Jones had set the stage by describing all the characters, the pace immediately picked up and it was a P.D. James murder-mystery novel again. After two or three sittings I realized I was almost two-thirds of the way through the 400 page book. There are three victims in the book, in fact the book sections are divided by 'victims.' Ms. James threw me a loop as to her third victim, and the novel had an interesting resolution.

I have two more books to read in the Adam Dalgliesh series, and then (Alas!) its over.
